Sea tides are huge powers that can be harvested, by just putting a turbine under water. They occur near-shore and are thereby easy to harvest. They can be harvested in semi-natural environments (harbor like locations), but they also can be harvested in special designed off-shore structures. These structures could have multiple functions that harvest other ocean based conditions (like aqua based production, wind power, solar power on the windmill surfaces) etc. Combinations in use, always make projects more easy to realize. The effects of these offshore artificial structures on the coastal streams must be researched, as otherwise the sea will eat out the mainland.
